Daca esentele pe care oamenii le stimeaza atat de mult, fara sa le iubeasca, n-au putut salva nimic, atunci nu ne mai ramane decat curajul amagirilor.
Sa ramanem adica aici pe pamant, sa ne compromitem si sa ne lichidam ca amagiri intre amagiri. Esentele ne distrug dincolo de lume: este o distrugere mai interesanta, dar nu mai dureroasa. A te distruge cu toti amaratii aces Daca esentele pe care oamenii le stimeaza atat de mult, fara sa le iubeasca, n-au putut salva nimic, atunci nu ne mai ramane decat curajul amagirilor. A te distruge cu toti amaratii acestui pamant. Este o renuntare mai mare, mai trista, mai nemiloasa. Sa stii ca lupti numai pentru amagiri si ca pentru esente n-are rost sa faci sacrificii prespune atatea luciditati, atatea rostogoliri si atatea victorii, incat nu te mai poate opri de la un suprem orgoliusi de la o suprema umilinta.

Think Cioran Readers should be given this Translation in French. Not only for he mastered this language. Also because he loved it so much. Was his second Language. Wrote in French. In fact, "Le Livre des Leurres" expresses more written in this Language and looses many nuances in its Spanish Translation.

I feel a thousand years older. Aug 18, Eliza rated it it was amazing Shelves: beloved. Left me breathless countless times, Cioran always does, in a dark piercing way that I can't put into words.
Found so much of my own self between these pages. I will keep returning to it, again and again, for as long as I'll have it with me, that's for sure.
Sonorous apocalypse. The one who holds the last hope. Jul 31, Ietrio rated it did not like it Shelves: junk. Cioran is a cutie in his numbing ignorance. He is categorical, he is definitive, he barely grasps anything beyond linguistics.
In Praise of "Le Livre des Leurres". Reflexive tone. Deep and with an inner beauty. For me this sad philosopher showed up here as someone who will remain. Inspite people critizising or laughing about him. For feeling temted or having said it, that thought of and about, suicide. Rachmaninof seem to have thought of too. Just another of so many others.
Is truth he suffered for what could have been an endogene kind of Depression and so a chronified one. And of cronic insomnia too. This lonely night walker for he couldn't sleep manage to wrote deep and poetic sort of thoughts somehow. To channelise it maybe? Instead, some of his contemporary French colleague Philosophers appeared in media as having commited the fearful suicide he wrote about.
Guess many think that what he wrote made him easier to bear his burden. Or simply to better withstand life. Althuser went mad and killed his wife, before. Gilles Deleuze comitted suicide. And so some may think he should not be studied or even forbiden from all Universitary Philosophical Credits and Careers in the whole planet.
Poor Cioran. For he never comitted such. Died as we all do and have to, since we are born. In his case, he died of Alzheimer. And now that he passed away; after having to fight bravely against something he was born with and so nor "guilty"of, he has to go on fighting against his "Criminal Negligence" Accusers. For having induced all of his readers, students, mates, friends and close to him people, to do what he never did. Cute and devious philosopher. Do not read it.
He seems to be an almost forbidden thinker or philosopher. And a quite important one of the past century. But there are critics who think he was a provoker too. One who used deep and obscure metaphores to lead You into abysses and dwells of Despair. And so the Nihilist Philosopher of Despair has to watch from other worlds how he is finally Accused as the sort of a suicide preacherman sect Leader he clearly never was.
Nor did he ever tried to induce anyone to commit suicide. But it is as if his critics were telling you that if You read it, you should do it in a hidden, secret way.
For he still is a Very Dangerous and dreadful thinker. You may kill yourself while reading it, You see? Obviously, I was trying to joke about those silly Cioran critics. This is one of the most beautiful, surprising, lucid and poetic books I've ever read. By the way, I don't remember to have read a single line about suicide. Not in this book. But it is truth he wrote about that somewhere. Is that a crime? For Camus wrote about it also, and was awarded with the Nobel Price.
Oh, and eventually, if You read him, please, do it in French Language for it was his beloved adoptive Language and it happens that he managed it masterfully. As few. Poor fellow. May he Rest in Peace. I read a partial translation of this book in an old Hyperion issue. I don't think I can give it a rating because it was so different from anything I've read recently. Cioran is obsessed with death.
